Ben Ean Estate
Ben Ean is one of the most breathtaking and sought after sites in the Hunter. Giving you exclusivity of the entire estate, you can roam the grounds and enjoy the endless photographic opportunities.
Epitomising the perfect combination of romance and sophisticated elegance… it’s the perfect vineyard estate setting offering the ultimate Hunter Valley Wine Country ‘experience’!
There are multiple stunning ceremony locations across the estate with indoor and outdoor options available. ‘The Courtyard’ offers a magnificent ceremony space, sheltered from the weather or head outdoors to ‘The Fig Tree’ or ‘The Garden Terrace’ which each offer unique and beautiful settings. The Laraghy and Steven Rooms offer a blank canvas and can be transformed into any look and feel that you have in mind for your reception. Alternatively, dine and dance the night away in the heritage listed courtyard with all its rustic charm.
You will be spoilt for choice on this spectacular estate! Head up to ‘The Fig Tree’ for a unique and stunning backdrop or use our sprawling vineyards for the quintessential wine country shots. An especially beautiful time of year is when all the autumn leaves turn red, or during spring when the vines turn lush and green.

Of course Ben Ean specialises in outstanding wines, however, when matched with their superb menu it’s a marriage made in heaven! You are invited to taste their full range of wines at the cellar door so that the perfect drinks menu can be designed especially for you.
